I am still in shock. I drew my Utah dream tag, South Bookcliff's Rattlesnake unit for Rocky Mountain Bighorn sheep.
starting the prep work now and will be spending every other weekend scouting between now and the Nov.1 opener grin
so excited I'm having a hard time typing!

That is one heck of a tag to draw. That's the hunt of a lifetime for a lot of people.

Great. I hate you. Good luck.

Congratulations on your tag.

My experience with desert bighorns tells me that any scouting you do prior to late September/October will only serve to help you familiarize yourself with the area and allow you to look over some the sheep the area has to offer. Once they start to rut they will move constantly and sometimes many miles per day.

You may want to see if you can contact someone with experience in that unit as they may have some insight as to where the rams traditionally gather to rut.

Good luck!


I hunt, therefore I am.

Jealous!

Good luck. We expect pictures. In my limited Big Horn experience, kilmer is right. The rams will be in bachelor heards in the summer and wont be in the same places as they will come hunting season.

Thats what happened to me last season.

Dont let it stop you though. Get out there and get into shape and takes lots of pictures.

YOU SUCK!
